Court documents suggest investigators probing the murder of Odin Lloyd are giving a renewed look at Aaron Hernandez's fiancé, Shayanna Jenkins.

The Hartford Courant reports investigators searched a storage unit in Bristol, Conn. rented to Jenkins because they believe she made "overt attempts to hide evidence" as well as to "hinder and mislead" the murder investigation. The newspaper reports surveillance video, text messages between Jenkins and her sister, as well as an interview with her sister, are all referenced in the documents as officials suggest Jenkins may have information regarding what happened to the handgun used in the shooting.

According to the court documents released Friday, Jenkins was reportedly caught on surveillance video carrying a plastic trash bag believed to contain a "rigid object" from Hernandez's North Attleborough home and placing it into a car. She returns to the home nearly a half hour later without the trash bag.

Officials have been unable to recover the weapon used to kill Lloyd. Documents show Carlos Ortiz, who is charged in connection to the shooting, told investigators Hernandez placed two guns inside a box in his basement on the night of Lloyd's murder. Hernandez was caught on his own surveillance system carrying what appears to be a handgun in the basement.

Hernandez's cousin, Tanya Cummings-Singleton, has also become part of the probe. Investigators allege Cummings-Singleton purchased a bus ticket to Florida for Ernest Wallace, who is accused of being an accessory after the fact of murder in Lloyd's death. Cummings-Singleton is reportedly being held in a Mass. correctional facility for failing to appear before a grand jury looking into the murder investigation.
